The FDA is currently taking comments as to whether to change the name high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) to corn sugar. The Corn Refiner's Association is lobbying hard for the name change because more and more people are refusing to buy products with HFCS in them. As a result, many food manufacturers have stopped using HFCS and replaced it with sugar. This is also a result of the sky rocketing price of corn. The cost of corn has shot up nearly 50 percent in the past couple of months.
